The Archbishop of Canterbury has said he struggles to watch TV vicars as they are portrayed as ‘rogues’ or ‘idiots’.

Justin Welby did not mention any specific characters but instead referred to the show Jeremy Clarkson‘s Farm. 

In a speech to the National Farmers’ Union, he said: ‘I have no idea how you feel about it… Maybe for you watching Jeremy Clarkson feels a bit like for me watching anything with a vicar in it.

He added: ‘I generally find depictions of vicars on TV to be depressing – they are portrayed as rogues or idiots… the reality is very different’

‘Either you can’t stand it or you get completely addicted. 

‘I generally find depictions of vicars on TV to be depressing – they are portrayed as rogues or idiots… the reality is very different – it is actually of hardworking, normal people, caring deeply about what they do and working all the hours there are to do it.’

He added: ‘But I take away from Clarkson’s Farm not just how much I enjoy watching it, but how hard, extraordinarily stressful and deeply complicated and scientific farming and agriculture is.’

Dark BBC comedy The League of Gentlemen featured the character of Rev Bernice Woodall, who frequently revealed she did not believe in God and informs couples during their weddings they are making an error.

In US show The Simpsons the Rev Lovejoy described the Bible as a ‘2,000-page sleeping pill’.
